Rhone
 
Is it not better, then, to be alone,
  And love Earth only for its earthly sake?
By the blue rushing of the arrowy Rhone
  Or the pure bosom of its nursing lake.
        Byron—Childe Harold. Canto III. St. 71.
  1
Thou Royal River, born of sun and shower
In chambers purple with the Alpine glow,
Wrapped in the spotless ermine of the snow
And rocked by tempests!
        Longfellow—To the River Rhone.
